Watch: A 3M Engineer Came On Our Podcast
We sat down with Nick LaBelle, Advanced Specialist Application Engineer from 3M. As part of 3M, Nick has worked extensively with adhesive tapes and prefers to call them “Problem Solving Adhesives.”
Nick’s role at 3M is to help bridge the gap between wanting a product to perform a specific way and how tape can help make that happen over more traditional manufacturing processes. He views the role of tape as solving design challenges for manufacturers in ways more traditional processes cannot. We also discuss how Tapecon and 3M can help with any design challenge.
The ability to distribute load evenly across a surface.
Using light weighting to go further with the materials we have.
How converters can customize tapes for greater advantages.
